SYNOPSIS

Chicago has never been more fun, or dangerous …

Sent away with his identical twin to get their wild ways under control, Beni Guzzi expects nothing to change. Same crap, new city, right? But if the boss of the Chicago mob can’t set the principes straight, then nothing will.

And then she rolls into town.

Stuck in a job that seems intent to keep her working behind a desk, August Rivera hopes a trip to the windy city for an assignment will make the magazine finally give her a spread. But getting to see her best friend, well, that’s just a bonus.

And then she sees him from across a club.

With a gang causing trouble for the Outfit, and a Capo’s crew in shambles, Beni has a million other things to focus on except the beautiful New Yorker who keeps finding her way into his bed. The thing is, when he’s with August, everything is better—easier.

Falling in love while handling family drama and mafia affairs is anything but simple … and in this business? It only takes a single mistake to lose it all.

That lesson can’t be taught, and it always comes too late.

*

NOTE: Beni is a standalone novel within The Guzzi Legacy series. It can be read as such.

EXCLUSIVE REVEAL EXCERPT

August cocked a brow right back at him.

The response prompted the twin on the left to flash perfect, white teeth in a grin that had her stomach doing flipflops. His tongue peeked out to touch the corner of his upper lip that curled in his amusement.

And wow.

Her heart skipped beats.

“Found someone you like?”

Her staring contest with the strangely beautiful twin across the room was broken when August turned to find Camilla grinning at her side. A bottle of her favorite whiskey in hand, and a whole line of shot glasses already lined up on the bar, she must have been standing there enjoying August’s little show for a while.

She wasn’t even ashamed.

“Who is that?” August asked, not bothering to look the twins’ way again.

“The one on the right is Bene—Benedetto. The left, or rather, the one now coming your way looking like he wants to take a bite out of you, is Beni—Benito.”

“How can you tell the difference?”

“The leather bracelets they wear. Bene’s is always on his right, Beni on his left. The same position they always stand next to each other. And he really is coming your way. Use their nicknames, they prefer it. Oh, and don’t mention the strange twinness things they do. They really can’t help it, and don’t even realize when they’re doing it.”

“Coming my wa—”

“Smile, Aug,” her friend murmured, “because he looks like he’s a man on a mission, and from the rumors I have heard … you want to be the woman his attention finds. Smile.”

“Cam—”

“I’ll just leave this with you, and go find Tom,” her friend interjected, handing the bottle of whiskey over but taking two shot glasses full of the amber liquid for herself. “And have fun!”

“Cam!”

Her friend was already walking away.

August watched her go until—

Ciao.”

Oh, wow.

His voice.

She knew it was him without even needing to turn around to see him. Because his voice caused her skin to pebble with goosebumps, and her heart picked up speed all over again. His close proximity had her body heating up like nothing else, and a grin started to form on her lips as she nibbled on her bottom lip.

“You here with someone?” he asked.

August squeezed her eyes shut for a moment, still not ready to turn around. If she did it before she was ready, she would probably embarrass herself, and that was not what she wanted to do here. Not by a long shot.

“Just my friends,” she said.

“Cam, yeah. Her husband is a friend. Your name?”

August finally decided to turn around, then, coming face to face with a man who looked like the gracious and good God above had spent just a little more time creating him. Up close, it was far more apparent to her just how beautiful he was.

Strikingly so.

“August Rivera,” she said.

He held out a hand.

She took it.

And that heat?

Only burned hotter.

“August,” he said, as though he were tasting her name in his mouth. And goddamn, it sounded good coming out of those full lips. “Beni.”

Hard working criminal lawyer Elizabeth Montgomery is finally taking a vacation, a solo trip to the mountains of North Carolina to a cozy little cabin in the woods. Unfortunately, she doesn’t even get to spend one night there. She takes an early evening hike and ends up on the wrong side of a vicious animal attack.

Or so she thought.

When she’s found and rescued by sexy stranger, Abraham, she soon finds out it was a werewolf that attacked her. And that she’s the newest member of Abraham’s pack.

Now Elizabeth must navigate the changes that come along with becoming a werewolf while also learning to fit into this tight knit pack. For an only child who rarely speaks with her own parents, getting close to Abraham and his family might just be scarier than becoming a werewolf.

Synopsis

She’s on the run. He has a Viking vendetta. When they unite through history, will they find doom or destiny?

Boston, 2019. Mia is desperate to protect her unborn child. Under her mafia boyfriend’s watchful eye, the pediatrician is out of options until a Norn transports her back in time. Swept off her feet by a muscular Norseman who calls her his betrothed, she plays along for safety until his touch gives her so much more…

Norway, 874. Hakon the Beast’s offer to marry the daughter of his enemy is part of a murderous scheme. Obsessed with destroying the king who killed his mother, he expects to feel nothing for his bride. But when she’s the complete opposite of what he expected, Hakon’s cold-blooded quest could melt under his burning desire.

When a deadly outbreak reveals both of their secrets, Mia and Hakon realize their fiery romance may not be enough to keep them alive.

With centuries between them, can Mia and Hakon find a way to cling tightly to love?

The Marriage of Time is the third standalone book in the steamy Called by a Viking series of time-travel romances. If you like sexy Nordic adventures, engaging characters, and heart-wrenching twists, then you’ll love Mariah Stone’s captivating story.

My Thoughts 💭

This was a cute time travel romance. Mia and Hakon were so adorable. Mia is thrown back in time while trying to get away from her ex and she’s threatened if she isn’t the princess Hakon is supposed to marry. They fall in love despite their differences. There’s a little drama when the real princess Hakon was supposed to marry shows up and Mia making a foolish choice but it was a pretty good read!

Release Blitz/Relaunch- It Had To Be You by Jess Bryant



Title: It Had To Be You
Author: Jess Bryant 
Genre: Contemporary Romance 
Series: A Fate, Texas Novel 


Add on Goodreads 








Austin Evans is a playboy, a flirt and a charmer. He’s dated half the female population of Fate, Texas and figures he’ll get around to the other half before he ever decides to settle down. Fate, however, has other ideas. Because one night with the prim and proper town doctor isn’t nearly enough. He can’t get her out of his head, doesn’t want her out of his bed and if he can convince her to give him half a chance he’ll keep her in his life forever.
It was supposed to be one night. One night of passion. One night of scorching hot, mind-blowing, earth-rocking fun. It was a one night stand that somehow turned into two nights, then three and four… and Victoria Sands knew better. Of course she knew better. She was a good girl, a smart girl. She knew better than to continue seeking him out, knew better than to keep falling into his arms, knew better than to let her heart get involved, but when it came to Austin her logical, rational brain never stood a chance to her body’s desire.
They’re complete opposites. She’s the town princess and he’s the boy from the wrong side of the tracks. She grew up in the mansion on the hill and his mother is the woman that cleans it. She thinks everything through and he goes with his gut instinct. The one thing they have in common is that they’ve never felt anything like the sparks that flare between them.
But is that enough to build a life on? A family on? And what about forever?

Excerpt
Nate stands
near the edge of the bathroom, facing the window, head down between his
shoulders, hands firmly planted on the windowsill, fingers sprawled but
crooked, as if he’s trying to crack his nails against the stone. A picture I
could paint in a heartbeat.
“I know
you’re there,” he says, his voice gravelly, painful. As though he’s wounded and
ready to lash out.
I should
run and hide. Take my pride and stride while I still own it. He could strip me
bare of everything I am and throw me to the masses to be ridiculed. He’s Falcon
Elite’s star athlete; a guy with a promise of a bright future. A person with so
much baggage you don’t dare touch them.
But I do.

My hand has
already reached for him and grazed his shoulder.
He
immediately turns around.
I take a
few steps back.
“Are you
stalking
me now?” he growls,
snorting. “Pathetic.”
He
breathes, walks, and talks like a monster. A man obsessed with one thing and
one thing only. Me.
“I’m not.
You started it,” I reply, still stepping back until I’m backed into a corner of
the toilets with no escape. He’s already blocked the door with his huge frame.
The only way out is by passing him. Shit.
He leans in
and traps me between him and the wall. “Why did you follow me?”
My heart
beats in my throat and I swallow away the lump in my throat.
“I … wanted
to know.”
“What? How
a guy like me can stoop to that level? Why I even try? If I’ll give up?” He
looks into my eyes like he’s trying to search for the truth but I don’t have it
for him.
“Tell me,”
he says.
“Why you
said you thought my painting was beautiful.” It sputters out of my mouth before
I realize it.
I don’t
mean to be so forthcoming, but when he looks at me like that with those
penetrating eyes it just happens. And something about the way he clenches his
jaw and then bites his lip undoes me.
“Because
it’s the truth,” he says with such a serious face that I find it hard not to
believe him.
He snorts.
“But you’ll obviously think that’s a lie.”
“No,” I
respond.
His eyes
narrow. He brings one hand to his face and rubs his jaw. “Liar.”
The silence
is overpowering. Seconds feel like minutes as his breath slows, but I can feel
every one of them prickling on my skin.
“Is this
really all about the pictures?” I ask.
He cocks
his head, and leans in even further until his breath is against the side of my
cheek and my whole body is covered in goose bumps. “That’s for me to know and
for you to find out.”
A gasp
escapes my mouth when his lips briefly brush past my ear.
“Tell me …
are you scared of me?” he whispers.
I want to
answer, but my throat feels numb and my head dizzy.
When our
eyes connect, the tension is like lightning electrifying me from the inside
out. This can’t be happening, it
can’t
be that … I can’t
want this.
A devious,
sexy smirk appears on his face. “Thought so.”
Then he turns
around and walks out, leaving me out of breath … and with my heart lost to a
boy I shouldn’t ever crave.

Review: The Irish Don’s Black Beauty By Rose Marie

Length:337 pages

Published: July 29, 2019

Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️

Source: Kindle Unlimited

Synopsis

It was love at first sight…well for Kahlani Edwards it was. The object of her affection…not so much. She loved his quiet, subdued and nerdy persona. She dreamed of playing in his fiery red hair, and she wanted nothing more than for him to love her back.

Little did she know that underneath the quiet and mysterious exterior of Connor O’Shea was a death dealing crime boss and heir to an Irish mob.

It was meant to be nothing more than a pity date. That’s all. How did it turn into complete obsession? How did this girl who was neither his type nor in his league bring him to his knees? Love? Never wanted it. Peace? Overrated! Anything that brought emotional attachment was not apart of his agenda, so why would he be willing to change course for anyone…. let alone her.

My Thoughts 💭

This was an okay read for me….I kind of liked the storyline but I think the way the Irish accents were typed was throwing me off a little bit. Kahlani was very naive but lovable. Conner has issues but loves his beauty. I didn’t care for how it left off. The snippet of part two has me unsure if I’d continue with their story.
